THis is Dhanesh , Here I have to configure a .procmailrc file in
order to control spams in the mail system
I had a few mailing lists , and I can send mails to these lists from my
personal mail id ,
in /etc/aliases tther is an entry for these lists as
mylists : list1,list2,list3 etc
but I have to block spams ,so I editted this entry as follows in
and I executed #newaliases
and in /home/spamassassin I created a file .procmailrc as follows (I
changed the ownership as spamassassin:spamassassin to .procmailrc and chmod
-R 777 to procmailrc )
# ee /home/spamassassin/.procmailrc
! list1 at mydomain
! list2 at mydomain
But when ever I tried to send mails from my account to mylists at mydomain ,
its not delivering the mails to receipients (before configuring procmailrc
its working fine but spams are coming along with this so I decided to use
procmail rc )
I tried this alos
I tried to configure the /usr/local/etc/procmailrc file also the same way
, but its also not sending the mails to the receipients in the lists...
tail /var/log/mailog tells that the messages forwarded to Maildir
directory , all the mails are ther in /home/spamassassin/Maildir but its
not deliverd to the client ids ..
So let me request you to help me what mistake i made while doing this .Any
suggestion will help me alot to solve this issue ..
thanks in advance
